Monrovia – In an effort to curb the spread of the COVID19 pandemic in Liberia, Golden Veroleum (Liberia) Inc. (GVL) donated chlorides, powder soap, fuel, hand washing buckets, scratch cards, themo flashes and other COVID19 prevention materials to the Health Authorities in Sinoe and Grand Kru Counties.
Making separate presentations in the two counties, GVL Nursing Coordinator, Annie T. Flomo and GVL Head Nurse in Grand Kru County, Zepoe Sieder, said that the donation is the Company’s contribution and also part of the Company’s corporate and social responsibilities, working with the counties’ health teams to contain the spread of the pandemic in the Southeast area. The duo called on Liberians to obey all established health regulations as part of global campaign to end the pandemic.
Madam Flomo further said that GVL has put preventive and protection measures at all places within the Company’s operational areas, such as having hand-wash buckets at the entry points within GVL farm sites and providing necessities at GVL clinics and offices. There has been internal COVID-19 awareness creation on preventive and protection measures, including washing of hands frequently, maintaining social distancing, avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth and practicing respiratory hygiene.
In their remarks, Sinoe County Health Officer, Dr. Alexander P. Tokpa, and Grand Kru County Health Officer, Dr. J. Woyee S. Wreh, commended GVL Management for the donation and pledged that the items being received will be used for its intended purpose. The duo said they have always recognized GVL as its major partner in the fight against the COVID19 pandemic. They said it is not the first assistance and contribution that the Company has rendered to the Counties.
It can be recalled that the Company last year embarked on the training of its security guards and employees at all sites in Sinoe County and Grand Kru County, on how to effectively prevent and/or to contain the spread of the virus which gained fruitful results as no employee in the Company were affected with the virus to date.
